UI Designer Mesmo, Inc.
THIS JOB HAS EXPIRED Position Summary
As the right fit, you?ll thrive in a supportive environment that?s low on hierarchy and high on team-based collaboration, feedback, innovation and the creation of fun and joyous experiences for over a million daily active users. Projects you will work on include social, mobile, casino and casual games, as well as the visual development of these titles. Responsibilities will include UI design and asset production.
About the Candidate
You know the ropes when it comes to exceptional design, and evangelize/champion the highest standards of user experience. Your UI designs are created to empower a user with knowledge, opportunity, direction and celebration, and are grounded by insight into the intended audience. You know how to 'show' rather than merely 'tell.'
You enjoy collaborating with various teams (Game Design, Game Production, Product) to solve design challenges and find the easiest, simplest way for users to get from point A to point Z, then work directly with the art department to create these assets.
You design exceptional UI as well as working product mock-ups, wireframes, user interface elements, and prototypes of key user interface opportunities (such as first time play, tutorialization and gameplay progression).
You are empowered to leverage analytics, user testing and customer feedback and apply them intelligently into iterative design solutions. You'll then partner closely with other contributing artists and developers to create and implement new features, while updating and refreshing current ones.
You may have considerable experience in game development, but maybe you?ve also designed web applications (or vice versa). Mobile and web design experience is a big plus!
You believe in the importance of sketching/wire-framing/mockups before polished art production to find the very best solution in an efficient and proactive manner
You can easily switch from macro to micro: from understanding the strategic value and business dynamics of a industry leading social game platform, to finessing visual designs at a vector or pixel level.
Your work is best in a participatory, collaborative, iterative, team based work environment. You inspire teams through collaboration as well as direction, vision and planning of visual design deliverables.
You?re an excellent written and verbal communicator. You have a knack for succinctly capturing a complex concept, weighing all variables and expressing them to others, giving (and receiving) product-centric feedback, and establishing a deep rapport with your teammates.
Visual UI development for functionality.
Strong knowledge of layout / UI design tools Flash and Photoshop (Illustrator, Fireworks, etc a plus).
User testing methodologies a big plus (though not required)!
Wireframing software experience such as Visio and Balsamiq a big plus (though not required)!
UI Programming and scripting (Flash, HTML and/or other languages) a big plus (though not required)!
Passion for making social and casual games a huge plus!
